Honda sold 10,867 vehicles in April 2024, registering a 42% increase over the 7,676 units delivered the year before. It delivered 4,351 PVs (passenger vehicles) in the domestic market, which is a decline of 18.10% from the previous year's 5,313 units. The automaker, on the other hand, exported 6,516 units last month, a staggering increase of 175.5% YoY. It shipped only 2,363 units in April of the previous year. The Elevate SUV was one of the main reasons for the significant increase in exports.

Commenting on the sales, Kunal Behl, Vice President, of Marketing & Sales, at Honda Cars India Ltd. said 'Our planned production volumes in April were lower due to the switchover of Elevate and City production to six-airbag standard variants and the dispatches were aligned accordingly. On the other hand, export of Elevate continues to significantly boost HCIL export volume which grew by 175% over the same period last year.'
